Capitalise on the Boxing Day Boom to Sell Your Property Fast

Are you considering selling your property in Moreton-in-Marsh but are thinking about waiting until January? While many sellers traditionally postpone listing their properties until after Christmas, there’s a golden opportunity to get a head start on selling your property in 2024 by preparing to sell now.

 

We have already witnessed an increase in homeowners seeking valuations compared to the same period last year. As more homeowners are gearing up to move, it looks like there is going to be a much bigger selection of properties for potential buyers.

 

So before the big rush begins these are the compelling reasons why preparing your home for sale before the festive season kicks in is a savvy move:

 

Seize the ‘Boxing Day Boom’ 

Boxing Day is the unofficial start of 2024 in the property market. Each year witnesses a surge in property browsing on Rightmove during the post-Christmas festive period. Last Boxing Day visits to Rightmove rose by 54%, with over 51 million visits between Boxing Day and the first working day of the new year. Launching your property on Boxing Day means that you capitalise on this valuable time by enjoying lower competition and a five-fold increase in audience

 

Capture Timeless Photographs

Still planning to put your property on the market a few weeks into the new year? If you ask your estate agent to take photographs of your home before you put your Christmas decorations up then you will ensure that your listing doesn’t look dated if it is still on the market in February. Take advantage of the early December lull in the property market as it means estate agents have more time to meticulously prepare your home’s marketing.

 

Prepare Now, Sell When Ready

Getting your home ready to sell doesn’t mean that you have to start having viewings straight away. It’s like finishing your Christmas shopping early, you have the task completed but it doesn’t mean that you have to start using your marketing now. If you start now you can arrange your property valuation, instruct your estate agent, and finalise your property listing details at a pace that suits you. Then when you’re ready, your estate agent can swiftly put your home on the market.

 

Become a ‘Power-Buyer’

Putting your home on the market before Christmas and finding a buyer early in the New Year will make you a “power buyer.” Sellers always look more favourably on offers from people who have already secured an offer for their own property as you are in a good position to proceed. If you cannot find your ideal property don’t be afraid to consider selling your property before finding one as you can then rent while you look. Chain free buyers are highly desirable to sellers and this strategic move can help to put you ahead of the competition, especially if other offers are already on the table.
